Yeah, me too.... I think you can go a hundred grand with some of the engraving, but possibly half that. I will never know. I do know that the best shotguns in the world have come out of Italy now for some fifty years. Before that England ruled, with some outstanding makers in Scotland, Germany, and ( ) even France. Spain has been up and coming for many years but they are not quite there with the best. In (about) 1976 my friend Pony Duke (of the North Carolina tobacco and university family) called me up and said "Cal, I am headed for Denmark for driven pheasants and I will pay your way and let you use one of my cased pre-war Purdeys." I said "Well, I would love to go but I am a little stretched and I can pick up some overtime here." FOOL! IDIOT! What a memory that would have been. Now Pony and most of my friends are dead and gone, and I am still "a little stretched."
